When She Stops Playing Nice Chapter 64

Chapter 64
After seeing off Ella, Olivia closed the door. Right after that, there was a knock on the door.
“Mom, what’s wrong?” she asked.
Olivia opened the door and saw Lucas.
“Lucas, it’s late, Olivia said. “Why haven’t you slept yet? What’s wrong? What’s the matter?”
“I noticed that you haven’t gone to bed,” Luas said. “I’m worried that you may be hungry, so I brought some food.”
“Okay,” Olivia said. “Thanks.”
Olivia was a little puzzled, but she did not find anything strange about it. After all, Lucas usually took good care of her, but s r v a nt s were still s e r v a n s at the end of the day. Olivia would not have any special feelings just because Lucas often showed concern about her well-being.
“Miss Olivia, why aren’t you asleep yet at this hour?” Lucas asked with concern. “Is something bothering you?”

Olivia was also a little frustrated, so she simply told Lucas, “I keep feeling that my mom me differently from before, and it’s making me quite scared…”
She feared losing everything she had at present.
What Olivia feared losing was not the so-called family, but rather the life of luxury and privilege.
Lucas comforted Olivia, saying, “Miss Olivia, don’t worry. Humans have feelings and won’t be totally heartless. You have stayed in the Miller family’s home for so many years. No matter what, you have a deep emotional bond with Mrs. Ella, Mr. Phillip, and your brothers. Don’t worry. Also, your engagement party with Mr. Ethan is coming up soon. Rest early. Look gorgeous when you make your grand entrance by then.”
“Sure thing.” Olivia responded.
Suddenly, she remembered something and asked Lucas, “By the way, how’s the investigation going regarding the toxic gas added to my father’s oxygen tank?”
After a pause, Lucas said, “Mr. Noah went to check the surveillance footage, but he hasn’t found any suspicious people yet.” The surveillance footage at Prover Hospital was challenging to access, taking considerable effort and time.
Olivia sneered and said, “Humph. I think the only suspicious person is Gina.”
Lucas did not respond to that remark.
While Ella was having breakfast the next day, she noticed that there was an extra glass of smoothie on the dining table. She was somewhat surprised as she did not instruct the serva n t s to make it.
Lucas explained from the side, “Mrs. Ella, Miss Olivia instructed the s v a n t s in the kitchen to make this. She said she noticed you were up late last night, wondering if you didn’t sleep well lately, so she specially instructed the s e r v a n t s to make
it.”
There was a hint of gratification in Ella’s eyes. “She is still such a good and considerate child, knowing how to show concern
to others,” she said.
Lucas smiled in agreement.

Chapter 64
As Olivia walked into the dining room, Ella said, “Sweetheart, thank you for making the smoothie for me.”
Olivia was still somewhat groggy. “Huh?” she said. “Smoothie?”
Lucas quickly interrupted and turned to give Olivia a look that signaled a message, saying, “That’s right, Miss Olivia. It’s the smoothie you instructed the s e r v an t s in the kitchen to make for Mrs. Ella. Didn’t you say that you were very worried abou t Mrs. Ella because you noticed that she was still up late at night yesterday?”
Olivia immediately understood and responded, “Oh, that’s right. Let’s share it”
“Okay,” Ella said.
After breakfast, Olivia went to see Lucas and thanked him for helping her rebuild her bond with Ella.
“Lucas, you did a great job,” Olivia said. “In a few days, I’ll talk to Mom about giving you a raise.”
The important thing is that your relationship with Mrs. Ella has been repaired,” Lucas said. “Whether or not I get a raise doesn’t matter much.”
Olivia thought, ‘He’s observant, knows how to handle things well, and can please his boss. Isn’t a pay raise the ultimate goal of such a servan t ?”
Olivia simply regarded Luc a s ‘s words as mere politeness and didn’t take it to heart..
Then, she went to doll herself up.
There were less than two days left until her engagement party with Ethan. Ethan wanted to take her to buy an engagement ring. Without much hesitation, she immediately decided on a ring from Quaria.
When Olivia was putting on makeup, she was in a very good mood. She thought, Once I’m part of the Jackson family, I’ll make sure to make Gina’s life miserable. After receiving 600 million dollars, she wants to get revenge on us by trying her best to get close to the Jackson family? Dream on! I’m the future granddaughter-in-law of the Jackson family, so they’ll definitely side with me!”
Olivia thought confidently.
By the time Gina woke up, it was already noon. Last night, she suddenly had an impulse and wanted to sketch a few design drafts. Once she started, she couldn’t stop and drew over a hundred sketches overnight. Then, she sent them to Michael to handle.
So she went to bed late.
She unlocked her phone and noticed that Gabriel had sent her dozens of messages.
At first, Gina found Gabriel chatty, but he was like this every day, telling her every little detail. Gina even got used to Gabriel sending her messages.
If Gabriel did not send her any messages one day, she might really feel a bit uncomfortable.
Her life might be full of various experiences, but there was also a sense of limitation or constraint to some extent
Gina took a look. It started from greeting her in the morning to asking if she was free to meet in the afternoon.
She seemed to be free for the time being, so she replied, “I’m free. What’s the matter?”
“Can’t disclose for now,” Gabriel said. “Shall Lcome to pick you up?”

“It’s okay, Gina said. “Just give me the address, and I’ll come over.”

Gabriel’s car was too eye-catching. Although Gina’s neighborhood was not an average neighborhood, his customized Rolls- Royce was still too eye-catching,
“Okay,” Gabriel replied.
Gina looked at the location sent by Gabriel and was surprised to find it was a Hosxen store.
She didn’t know why Gabriel wanted to meet her at a handbag store. Since she had agreed, she decided to keep her appointment.
Arriving at the Hossen store, Gina walked in and saw Gabriel,
Gabriel naturally stepped forward and held Gina’s hand, saying, “Take a look. Is there anything you like?”
Gabriel initially intended to buy a few handbags and send them over to give Gina a surprise. However, he told the sales assistant earlier that the handbags were for his fiancée. When the sales assistant asked if his fiancée had any preferences for handbags, he could not answer. He also realized that if he gave her handbags she didn’t like, she probably wouldn’t use them and they would only add clutter to her place, causing inconvenience. So, he decided to abandon the idea of surprising her with gifts.
He thought. There’ll be plenty of opportunities to surprise her in the future. Missing out on this occasion is not a big deal.
Gina was a little puzzled. “You want to buy me a handbag?” she said. “Why?”
“I notice you often carry a canvas handbag” Gabriel said. “How about switching handbags occasionally?”
Gina actually didn’t have much desire for luxury goods. It was not that she couldn’t afford it. She just wasn’t interested. As for why she kept carrying a canvas handbag, it was because that handbag was bought and gifted to her by Ruby.
It was the first time she received a gift from someone else.
That canvas handbag had a special significance to her, even though it looked cheap and average.
“It’s okay,” she said. “I’m used to carrying my canvas handbag.”
C i n a did not understand why Gabriel did this.
Gabriel looked at her sincerely and said, “Gina, don’t reject my goodwill, okay? Didn’t you promise to give me a chance? Let me treat you well, okay?”
The sales assistant beside him was shocked and envious when she heard Gabriel’s heartfelt confession.
